What is Tamiflu?

Tamiflu belongs to a class of drugs known as neuraminidase inhibitors. Tamiflu works by attacking the virus to prevent it from reproducing in the body. The anti-viral drug is considered highly effective in treating the flu if administered within two days of the onset of symptoms. Tamiflu alleviates symptoms and prevents the illness from worsening. For those who are at risk of serious complications resulting from the flu, such as older, pregnant or immune-compromised patients, Tamiflu can reduce the severity of the illness.

What is Happening with Tamiflu?

For many years, parents reported that their children have displayed abnormal behaviors while taking Tamiflu. Tamiflu has been suspected of causing suicidal thoughts and inducing suicide in kids and teenagers. A number of parents across the country have reported that their children threatened to, or committed suicide, while taking Tamiflu.

The Roche company, the manufacturers of Tamiflu, have insisted that these behaviors are caused by the flu itself and are not related to use of the medication. The manufacturer’s label states only that psychological symptoms have been reported by children taking Tamiflu and users should be monitored for side effects. A handful of lawsuits have been filed across the country, including Texas, Indiana and New Jersey, claiming that Tamiflu prompted their children to commit suicide or hallucinate and attempt suicide.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has stated that it cannot be certain whether Tamiflu or the underlying illness is responsible for generating behavioral changes. However, other investigations have confirmed a connection between Tamiflu and behavioral side effects. A warning about the risks of Tamiflu was issued in Japan in 2007 after 18 teens committed suicide while using Tamiflu. The British Medical Journal also released a study indicating that Tamiflu has only limited efficacy in alleviating symptoms and decreasing the duration of the flu, but poses considerable risks of side effects, such as nightmares and insomnia.
